is the wharncliffe blade. Not that it's important, but the edge is dead straight which makes it extremely easy to sharpen and keep sharp freehand.It never ends up with the tip being a different angle or dulled like clip blades do (and it's easier to get it sharper).

There is a local maker here who makes wharncliffe's tool hard, and had made a small lockback a few years ago (great eastern cutlery), but I don't think they have anything like it now. It's fantastic both in quality and in having respectable blade hardness.
